Mended Hearts 

Mission

Mended Hearts is a specially trained group of volunteers, who inspire hope in heart disease patients and their families. These volunteers call upon their own personal heart disease experiences and offer support, education, information and advocacy to cardiac patients while in the hospital, assisting with the patient's emotional recovery, and helping the patient and his/her family approach treatment and recovery with a positive outlook.

Special Events

Mended Hearts holds support group meetings for members, heart patients, and their families. Programs of social and educational interest are presented with topics varying from new medical techniques to exercise, diet, and lifestyle. A second component of the Mended Hearts organization is the visiting program.
